FreezeContainer

ZETA FreezeContainer

The ZETA FreezeContainer family is a range of innovative containers designed for reproducible and precisely controlled freezing and thawing of liquids. ZETA FreezeContainers are designed for safe transport and storage of high-value APIs.

 

ZETA Features & Services

To bridge space, the ZETA FreezeContainers can be transported by land, sea or air. They are dimensioned to fit into an LD3 air freight container.

To bridge time, the ZETA FreezeContainers can be stored temporarily in a cold room, or for a longer period connected to a cooling station.

Thawing is done in a controlled manner up to a certain target temperature. Subsequently, the product can be maintained at a cool temperature for the further processing steps.

ZETA offers the following solutions:

  • Exactly defined freezing and thawing processes
  • Safe storage and transport of liquid pharmaceutical products
  • Scalable systems
  • Wide range of up-to-date equipment available for execution of FAT
  • Well-thought-out concepts for quality assurance and documentation
